purlwise on my head

Could you guess Purlwise was a hat? The specs are: Gedifra Living in color 5101 (bought on sale at; size 7 bamboo dpns. Gauge is tight, but I like my hats dense. I used the slipped stitch ribbing from Loll in the Calmer Collection and based the pattern on the Harlot's rolled brim hat recipe. I did have to modifiy the decreases to take my ribbing into account. I think if I make another one, I'll start the decreases earlier and put more rows between them. I'd like it to lie a little flatter.

I really like it. I think it makes me look very different. Hubby's not so sure he likes it. It's not my usual sweater and khakis deal.
